Yes - the master tapes were in terrible condition when these albums were made, and no - it's not clearer on the 2004 release, since, believe it or not, it is EXACTLY the same (down to the last click/pop) as the 1997 edition. The only difference is the cover, and the fact that the new release has none of the fantastic liner notes.

Interestingly, if you watch the "Musical Journey" DVD that came with the ROTS OST, the sound is near perfect for the original trilogy cues. This suggests to be that a much better release is possible, and I hope it comes along soon.
